The African National Congress (ANC) mourns the passing of Dr Bongani Khumalo, a distinguished servant of the people of South Africa.
The passing of Dr Khumalo, Chairperson of former lotto operator, Gidani, has robbed the nation of one of its most committed public servants.
After 1994, Dr Khumalo dedicated most of his time and energy to the reconstruction and development of the country. He served his country with distinction.
He was Chairperson of Transnet Ltd from 2001 to 2004. He also served on the Boards of Anglo American Platinum Limited and the South African Broadcasting Service (SABC).
He was appointed Deputy CEO of Eskom, having grown within its ranks
Dr Khumalo also served as Strategic Advisor on HIV and AIDS and Rurual Development in the Presidency from 2000 to 2001.
Earlier in his career, he served as Director of Communication for the South African Council of Churches from 1979 to 1982.
Dr Khumalo will be remembered as the Founding President of South African Men’s Forum.
The ANC conveys its heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. We wish them strength and fortitude in their moment of grief.
